“Change happens when the why becomes more important than the fear.”

Mary Crafts is…quite simply…. a living legend. From humble beginnings and dire circumstances, she invested blood, sweat and countless tears into building what would become the most celebrated catering company in Utah.

That multi-million dollar empire became the launching pad for so much more. Today, Mary has handed the reins of her catering empire to her incredibly gifted children who have taken her company to the next level, while Mary turns her attention to helping others build their dreams.

Whether those dreams are centered around business, family or personal growth, Mary is ready to engage her expertise, assets, and energy into helping others build and grow!
